Former employees of SpaceX will begin to print the rocket on 3D printers

What will they do in order to reduce the cost of production of space rockets some sort of time ten! Here, for example, former employees of SpaceX and Bue Origin founded a start Space Relativity, the purpose of which — print rockets using 3D printers. According to experts of the newly founded company, it will help them significantly reduce manufacturing costs and launch missiles.

The company's Founders, Tim Ellis, who previously worked at Blue Origin, and Jordan noone, a former employee of SpaceX, I believe that the use of 3D printers in space will soon be commonplace, and the production of missiles with the help of 3D printing, and even more so, so the experts have joined together to bring dreams to reality.

In the creation of missiles, according to their plan, will involve a giant and a fully robotic 3D printers that will print rocket entirely. The process of assembling another rocket — a tedious and hard task, so why not charge it to robots that can cope with the task not worse the person?

Six-meter robotic 3D printers are able to print a rocket engine in just a couple of weeks now, and the fuel tank they will need only a couple of days. The whole process of production of the missile would take three to six months.

While in a startup without the help of people do not, therefore, in Relativity Space yet tightened their belts and are working on the result. The company is listed only fourteen employees, who by 2020 are going to print the first missile, and a year later, in 2021, have to launch it into space.
